  1. Hid file by type as a default setting (DxO PhotoLab .dop files)

    I use a number of other editing software programs for both photos and vid and so of these create their own edit cache/setting files for each photo. For example DxO PhotoLab create a .dop file for every photo.
    It would be handy to hid/ignore these for files when reviewing/searching photos. Maybe as a with a filter toggle as well, because if we need to move the photos around these settigns files need to move with them.

  2. Native integration with MacOS Photos library (e.g., albums, etc.)

    I would LOVE to be able to use Bridge to manage the photos in my MacOS Photos library. Apple has done a nice job making a seamless experience across devices, but the Photos app is lacking, and I'd love to see this integration (see RAW Power app for an example of this type of integration).

  3. Allow sign in to have a validity period

    EVERY time I want to use Photoshop and Bridge I have to ssignin - WHY is this necessary?? Why not allow a peeriod of time - a week isn't too much to ask is it?
    Also, at least have the sign in work for both Photoshop and Bridge - it's completely ridiculous having to sign in to each. It's valuable to me because it's VERY irritating that I have to do this each time and makes me think that Adobe don't really care about their user base, just how to get more $$$ out of them. Thank you

  5. Renaming a Keyword should automatically rename the keyword for photos previously assigned the keyword

    When you rename a keyword, it doesn't change the name of the keyword on photos that have previously been assigned the keyword.

    For example, as Adobe Bridge is right now, if I created a keyword "keyword1" and assigned it to 100 photos, then changed my mind and decided I wanted the keyword to be called "keywordA", I'd go to rename it and the 100 photos still have the tag "keyword1" and I have to go back and change them all to "keywordA". It should automatically assign "keywordA" to those photos previously assigned "keyword1".

  7. Can search in Bridge actually work?

    Can search in Bridge work? If I type in the name of a file, shouldn't Search find all files containing that name fragment? There are 9 files, for example, with a simple 6-character subname for them in my "2020" folder of folders. Bridge doesn't find any of them. But Windows Search does!

    It's interesting how at Adobe MAX there's demos of how brilliant Adobe Sensei is. At the Las Vegas MAX a few years ago, for example, the demonstrator asked Adobe Sensei to find all of the "blue" photos in the library, and then refined the search further.

    And yet…

  10. Fix the lock-up when switching to Bridge from other apps

    For as long as I have been using Bridge -- at least 10 years -- I have had the annoying problem where Bridge locks up temporarily when I switch to it by clicking on the Bridge Window while using another app. Bridge comes to the front, but you can't do anything. Bridge returns to normal if I switch to any other app, then back to Bridge.

    This behavior has occurred in every version of Bridge back to at least CS5, across every Mac OS going back a decade or more, on at least 7 different iMacs, Mac Pros, Macbooks and…

  11. Camera raw new crop tool behavior

    Please return the old crop tool behavior or let the user decide in settings how we want it.
    Before the crop was set to default when switching to next photo (no aspect ratio) now, when I crop with any aspect ratio in one photo and go to next photo the "remain aspect ratio" stays turned on (with full photo aspect ratio) and need to be manually switched off or set to different ratio if wanted.
    Personally I also don't like the current moving photo instead of the crop area with mouse and the behavior like the crop always stays in…

  12. Icon showing Indesign file is open on another computer

    It would be great if Bridge had an icon that showed an InDesign File was open. Currently I switch back to finder in order to see a ghost file/temp file with an "~" in front of it noting someone on our network has it open.

    If there were an icon noting that in bridge, it would be extremely helpful not having to flip back and forth from bridge to finder.

    Thank you!

  13. Bridge v 110083 So slow it is virtually Unusable

    Simply renaming a folder that contains 9 small files takes 10 times longer than it used to.

    Everything is Ultra Slow, including simply opening Bridge and trying to view the Folder Hierarchy. Then, viewing the contents of folder feels like it will never happen. I get so frustrated waiting I go away and do something useful.

    It's not likely to be an issue with my computer HP Z840 w 72Gb RAM and tons of 12Gb/sec SAS HDs for file storage. Plus older Bridge CS6 and non Adobe programs run very fast.

  15. Key words

    According the manual, to export key words it has to be done in the key words menu. But where is the menu ? How to import key words from Bridge 2019 in 2020? The manual is really poor. It should be written by non specialists in computers but by commun people able to write properly in an easy understandable and precise way.

  16. Review Mode with amount selected listed

    I am a photographer that loves using bridge to cull down my photos. The issue is I like to cull them to a certain number. When in review mode, I have no idea how fair I've culled them down. Usually with an hour family shoot, I take about 700-800 photos. I want to narrow it down to about 100. But as I cull down, I don't know how many I have in the process. I would love for it to show 125/802 selected or something.

  18. Workspace doesn't work

    Workspaces just doesnt seem to remember the workspace setup i save. i am not doing anything special just displaying metadata and file structure. Bridge will just randomly forget about this and arrange the window with just thumbnails.

  19. Camera Raw

    In general, i like the new camera raw better than the old one, if there weren't some major flaws which are very disturbing in my workflow...


    1. zoom is not always "fit to screen" -when i crop it changes zooms out - but it doesn't jump back to "fit to screen". annoying.


    2. the crop tool was way better in the old version - give people the choice to switch to the old version.


    3. changing the aspect ratio of a picture while cropping - should be easier to reach via right click ..


    4. the saving button in the thumbnails - is it…

  20. Adobe Bridge file associations with Windows UWP applications

    At present it seems like it's not possible to set a file association within Bridge to point to a Windows UWP application (eg .mp4 to Windows Films & TV application). There is no way to set the Bridge preference by browsing to find the applications .exe file because the application does not have an .exe file.
